SCHNITT is a collaboration of German experimental musician.
Amelie Duchow and Italian media artist Marco Monfardini. The duo works at the intersection between music, art and technology, with a strong focus on the cohesiveness linking audio and video. Custom-made, innovative software and electronic devices allow SCHNITT to develop complex A/V installations and site-specific live performances adapted to various exhibition venues. Their use of abstract media elements, combined with their respective perceptions toward technology, creates an equilibrium between their work’s form and concept.
